Prophecy Of Her Mirror Mask
2012 07 17
In darkness before dawn I wake at flash
of blinding light when Lady Liberty
takes me to tholos on Capitol Dome
and points to red streets of America.
When Moroni tries to assassinate
King Shaka Zulu and steals crown of power,
Eagle Empire will split and clash in war
as gold coins are stolen from Carpenter.
Mute prophet on One-Eye Pyramid cries
choose who will wield scepter of Charlemagne,
for two wizards of freedom and truth fight
over who will play Moses on Wall Street.
Choose right of personal freedom to live,
do what you want to pursue happiness,
as long as you hurt no one when you gain,
and treat others how you want them to treat you.
Or choose right of corporate freedom to take,
exploit cash labor of hard-working people
imposing rules of partriarchs and kings,
enslave women, crush science, and close schools.
Woman with torch weeps by river of blood
when Moroni melts gold coins of blind greed
so he can erect statue of himself,
vampire of hate howling on White House roof.
Bear and Panda to fight Lion unite
when spark of war is lit on Persian shore
where Hermes wrestles Jacob by oil sea
to control scepter of power Jesus dropped.
Bear and Eagle wounded from bitter fight
will be healed by Panda with sacred Peach,
then Kwan Yin will reign in Black House of Ravens
and nuclear missiles will rust in green rain.
Though Zarathi is broken in Three Kingdoms
all lands of America, north and south,
will unite under one flag of twelve stars
ruled by Dragon Queen on Island of Cubes.
Five years flames of war will burn shaking Earth
while children in Garden of Eden cry,
then woman with water jar will arrive
and fill every cup with refreshing juice.
Look for her star shining in Western sky,
who brings prosperous peace and justice for all,
for she rides Lion sea to shining sea
rebuilding empire demolished by war.
Lady Liberty will gather lost souls
who join hands and sing on cleansing stream shore,
then David will cast down statue of gold,
and Goliath work in factory of wealth.
Decade of Gold and Fire will transform law
then Solon and Arthur will come again,
and Astraia will reign as Queen of Earth
but masked vampire will hide in cave of gems.
Grandson of Jesus and Mohammed will play
game of thrones in United Nations hall
then build crystal pyramid by Star Lake,
and apple trees will bloom from desert sand.
Blind Jester King will ride Bucephalus
eighty years on global merry-go-round
while Mary brings her little lamb back home,
sacrifice to Moloch in shopping mall.
New savior will rise from desert and swamp,
sitting mute on mountain of broken dreams,
to remove mask of illusions and hopes
and reveal mirror that reflects true face.
